Kick-Off

15:00

The Poachers came up short on one of their toughest away trips of the campaign.

New boys Rugby Town are expected to be title contenders in their first season in the United Counties League.

They flexed their muscles with two goals in rapid succession midway through the opening period.

Richard Ford put the visitors back in the game but they went into the interval 3-1 down after Rugby scored again on the stroke of half-time.

Two more quickfire goals put Rugby 5-1 ahead early in the second period but Boston showed spirit to pull it back to 5-2 with Scott Coupland notching his third in three league games.

There's plenty to ponder for the Poachers' new management team of Gary Edgley and Lori Borbely.

Town: J Lambley, Tate, J Sparrow, Ashton, Townrow, Ford, Borbely, Walker, Johnson, Coupland, Turki
